Not Dead.

I haven't posted on this blog for almost 3 months. Mostly because nothing really interesting happened in that time period, and because I kept forgetting to update my blog. But just as the plants came out of winter dormancy, so has my blog. This week was a race against time, as there was an unexpected break in the rain Monday and Tuesday, and my family had to furiously plant a lot hyacinths, de-weed the flowerbed, and trim some trees. I also got some great pictures that my sister made:

Amaryllis blooming.


This is my first post this year. I was kinda swamped, and didn't have any time to post for a while. It was about a week and a half ago that my Amaryllis started to show some signs of blooming, and now it's in full bloom! It's kinda tall and tipsy, but the flowers are amazing. After it blooms I have to let the leaves die back, remove it from the pot, let it dry out, and store it in a cool well ventilated place until spring when I can plant it in the back yard. I hope it will bloom next year. I also managed to make a cool looking Mr Chlorophyll icon to water mark my pictures.
